Victory and Thorpy FX collaborate to make the ultimate Victory 'amp in a box' stompbox based on the V30 Jack MKII. The Jack is a mixture of crunch gain sounds through to screaming leads.
A Victory classic in a pedal! Based on the V30 Jack designed in collaboration with Guthrie Govan, the V1 is stompbox that takes all the elements of the VC30 MKII Jack and squeezes it into a pedal.
The V1 series is a collaboration between Victory and award winning pedal builder Adrian Thorpe MBE. Designed and built in Britain, the Jack is a true collaboration between two British companies.
The V1 Jack can do low gain, barky sounds, all the way through to over the top gain. It's a perfect way to add the Victory sound to your pedal board.
“The idea of a collaboration was something that made a good deal of sense, as we (Victory) were to an extent, venturing into the unknown…
At Victory, we have the knowhow, of course; however, being able to make use of Adrian’s (Thorpy’s) experience and the various subtleties of his design ethic, enabled us to better appeal to the player who likes a clean amp platform; getting their various sounds from pedals.”
“We were keen to make the V1 pedals sound as close to the full-bore valve amps as possible but working with Martin and the team meant that we had to be even more precise to do their amp designs justice in solid state pedal form.
It took a long time and many times we had to go back to the drawing board. Despite this, maintaining an uncompromising nature of what the Victory sound is, means that pedal fiends worldwide can enjoy these pedals, no matter what their flavour preferences.
I’m proud to say we worked on these V1 pedals.”
